With its recent complete restoration, championship golf course, fine eateries, and ‘Hotel of the Year 2018’ award, there’s no reason why the Adare Manor Hotel shouldn’t be on your luxury vacation list.

About The Adare Manor Hotel

Sitting on the banks of the River Maigue, this 840-acre manor house was built for the Earl of Dunraven almost two centuries ago. It has recently undergone a complete restoration of its carboniferous limestone walls, Killaloe slate roofs, bronze window frames, timber door frames, and original stone floors.

Luxury accommodation

From the Classic to Deluxe rooms, to the 1-bedroom suites, and the signature suites, every room in Adare Manor Hotel has been individually designed and beautifully furnished, and is full of personal touches and carefully considered details. The same goes for the Rose & Lavender Cottages – two three-bedroom storybook cottages on a self-catering basis – and the two and four bedroom Manor Lodges.

Unforgettable cuisine. Dining at Adare Manor.

With a spectacular seasonal menu featuring locally sourced artisan produce, the gracious splendour of The Oak Room sets the scene for Adare Manor’s fine-dining experience. Overlooking the formal gardens and flooded with natural daylight, The Drawing Room is the ideal spot for morning coffee, light meals and refreshments until 5pm, and cocktails and sparkling conversations in the evening. The Tack Room is a haven of delicious food, great company and a collection of the world’s finest libations. Locally farmed produce, fresh seafood, Irish dry-aged beef and impeccable service in a stylishly relaxed atmosphere help define the restaurant that is The Carriage House. And then there’s The Gallery at Adare Manor, with its soaring arch ceilings, provides a magical setting for an indulgent and unforgettable Afternoon Tea.
